The MSc study program includes an academic internship of 24-36 credits. The internship is a learning period during which the relationship with professional practice is emphasized. This means that the internship usually is carried out outside Wageningen University. Selection of a suitable host institute or industry is done by students themselves. Inspiration and suggestions may be obtained from previous thesis experience, from fellow students, from departmental scientists or from the weekly vacancy mailing sent by the Internship Food Sciences Team.

In addition, students are advised to self-enrol in the MSc Internship Food Sciences (MFT, MFS, MFQ) Brightspace: where they can find all up to date information regarding internship procedures, relevant forms and recent internship vacancies.
